Francesco Guidolin hints at Udinese exit

Francesco Guidolin reveals that he may step down at Udinese boss in the next few days.

Francesco Guidolin has revealed that he intends to sit down with the Udinese directors to discuss his future.

The 56-year-old has guided the Friulani to Champions League qualifcation in back-to-back seasons following his move from Parma in 2010.

However, Guidolin revealed that his is in need of a break from football in order to concentrate on his health.

"I am very tired and need to rest," Guidolin told Sky Sport Italia. "I think I'm going to need a long rest, as I am under a lot of strain and I don't know if my health can hold up to another season like this with over 50 matches.

"In the next few days I will talk to the directors, because I feel the need to go off grid and stop for a while, so I don't know if I'll be ready for the start of July."

The Italian has hinted that he may stay on in a less stressful role, such as becoming a technical director at the club.

"Could I stay in Udine as technical director working with a young coach?" he added. "I would be ready for that role."

Guidolin has previously taken Vicenza to the Cup Winners' Cup semi-final in 1998, where they lost to Chelsea.
